A Fading Melody Blurs the Line Between Games and Art [Xbox 360]

If you’re not paying attention to the Xbox Live Community games, you should be. These indie titles are so often a steal at minuscule prices, and if you’re into simple, beautiful experiences, you can find ’em aplenty. Some may say games aren’t art, but an example like A Fading Melody pushes the definitions into new territory.

In A Fading Melody, players are charged with breathing color and light into the dreams of a coma patient–literally. Action even brightens the screen.

The simple, creative visuals, combined with a lovely soundtrack, go far to create a convincing and beautiful world, and the gameplay–classic 2D platforming–flows well with the story. A Fading Memory boasts seven levels for only 200 Microsoft points (that’s $2.50 USD for those of you who still recognize actual currency), and it’s worth every one of ’em.
